You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Pride and Prejudice’ tag.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. A big thank you goes to Stephanie at the book review blog Stephanie’s Written Word, who before she left on a trip to literary mecca Ireland recommended Novel Destinations for holiday gift-giving. In her post “Gifts for the Literary Minded,” Stephanie gives a great, detailed description of the book and calls it “a delightful read for any book lover.” Music to our ears!

In the post Stephanie also features a second book, one that is on both of our holiday wish lists: Pride and Prejudice: An Annotated Edition, which is gorgeously illustrated and includes commentary about the authors, the characters, and the time period. Mr. Darcy awaits.

Making a list, checking it twice…

Later in the week we’ll be sharing gift suggestions for bibliophiles, including some Jane Austen-themed items.

#LoveYourLibraryMonth 📚❤️📚 I love that even when I’m on the road, like I am now for a few weeks, I can borrow books from my hometown library via the Libby app. It’s like having access to a secret world on my phone with an immediate and seemingly endless supply of reading material. 📚❤️📚 #hobokenpubliclibrary #readingonthego #libbyapp #miami #changeofscenery #booksandbooze #igreads #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #booksofig
One reason why I ❤️ my book club: variety. These are our last four reads, a mix of fiction and nonfiction, all vastly different stories selected by various members. Song of Solomon was only my second Toni Morrison, and it was my first time reading works by the other authors. 📚 #bookclubreads #discussionworthy #bookclub #bookstack #igreads #bookstagram #booksofig #readinggroup #bibliophile #booked #books #songofsolomon #tonimorrison #avisitfromthegoonsquad #jenniferegan #calebscrossing #geraldinebrooks #brainonfire #susannahcahalan
Spending Edith Wharton’s birthday re-reading one of my favorite novels by her. The Glimpses of the Moon has shades of The House of Mirth, another of my top Wharton works, but is more lighthearted. The story follows the misadventures of Nick and Susy, who have more social connections than funds. They strike a bargain: marry and spend a year honeymooning in their rich friends’ mansions and villas, with the caveat that if either of them meets someone else they’ll dissolve the marriage. A comedy of errors ensues. In her autobiography Wharton describes her motivation for writing the novel as a “flight from the last grim years” of World War I. She was born on January 24, 1862, in New York City. #edithwharton #theglimpsesofthemoon #favoritenovels #classicliterature #bookstagram #igreads #books #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #booklove
